...may once again be dependent upon Nicolas Anelka.
No, the Frenchman will not be returning to the Reebok, but where he plays next year will have a big affect on who is up front for the Wanderers. If Anelka stays at Chelsea, that could well mean that Daniel Sturridge is available on loan for another season. As we all know, Owen Coyle would love to have the young striker back at Middlebrook Leisure Center.
However, if one or more from Anelka, Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres, Florent Malouda, and Salomon Kalou decides to move on, Sturridge will probably feature in Chelsea's first team next season. If this scenario sounds familiar, that is because we went through the same thing with Jack Wilshire and Arsenal last season.
I think Daniel Sturridge is an outstanding player, and I want the absolute best for him and his career, I just hope that best involves a 25-goal season for the Wanderers in 2011-2012.
